all original, because I don't think the lines in the binding on the neck would have worked so well with FEB


Not true...the custom ordered Greco's I have seen had the triple binding with feb and it looked fantastic but that is my opinion

the lines on the neck not the body..

3 or 5 made according to one of my sources in Japan who saw them at the show in 1994, he is not sure if there were 3 or 5 on display.

Why would there be FEB on the body lol?
I have to try and dig up some pics of the FEB on the triple neck binding on a few Greco's. I am sure I can find some picks from the list of expired Yahoo guitars to show you.

Very well...let me search my 1000+ list of ended guitars here and see if the auction pics are still up lol. I saw both a Les Paul style as well as a F Hole Acoustic and ES175 custom order Greco with the double binding and FEB. It looks gorgeous too.

Here is one...this has FEB but the BIG photo he had of diff areas of the guitar is now a deal link in the center of the page. Sucks as he had taken some nice shots of the frets:

I am looking for the acoustic (F Hole) currently.

ah yes nice, i just thought the black neck binding and the nibs would not be so good with the white lines then being interrupted by black nibs, but maybe looks good too!!

On that one, if I recall, the white outer part of the binding was where the nibs came up from. Sucks the main photo is dead as it had a nice closeup and looked fantastic.
